Known for its outstanding ability for pushing the limits of performance, Panerai is truly the master of the seas. Each timepiece is an ode to precision, innovation and a relentless pursuit of excellence that has stood the test of time. Further cementing its commitment to the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli as its Official Sponsor in 2021, Panerai is all set to launch its latest timepiece in collaboration with the formidable team at Watches And Wonders 2024 with the all new submersible Luna Rossa.

Pushing The Envelope 
In a daring and audacious approach to watchmaking, the watch encapsulates the essence of competitive sailing – a relentless drive toward victory and a deep respect for the marine domain. The Submersible Luna Rossa PAM01565, developed by the Laboratorio di Idee at the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, is an e-commerce exclusive edition available in a limited edition of 300 pieces.

The 42mm brushed steel case boasts of a unidirectional rotating steel bezel with a black matt ceramic disk. This is specifically chosen for its notably higher resistance to scratches than a metal one, essential for withstanding the shocks or unintended contact with various objects the bezel is usually exposed to. The bezel rotates only counterclockwise, allowing for the calculation of immersion time - a crucial feature for an underwater instrument. The water resistance of up to 30 bar (approximately 300 meters), ensures that the watch has been rigorously tested, subjecting it to a pressure up to 25% greater than the guaranteed water resistance value to ensure it meets Panerai’s stringent standards. 

Panerai New Submersible Luna Rossa Profile

The blue sun-brushed dial with a black gradient finish evokes the profound depths of the ocean, a fitting homage to the mysteries of the ocean that Luna Rossa’s sailors navigate with expertise. The dial is adorned with the decal of Luna Rossa, while luminous dot and baton hour markers, along with a date window at 3 o’clock and a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, enhance readability against the backdrop. 

Mastering The Craft 
The hands are treated with Super-LumiNova, ensuring visibility in all conditions, and the small red second hands echo the watch’s connection to the competitive spirit of sailing. The screwed case back, which helps to ensure the watch’s high degree of water resistance is engraved with the image of a Slow Speed Torpedo, the notorious “pig” on which the commandos of the Italian Navy sailed through the depths of the sea on their missions while wearing instruments made by Panerai, in the 1940s.

Panerai New Submersible Luna Rossa Caseback


The watch is powered by the automatic P.900 movement, renowned for its reliability with a 3-day power reserve. The P.900 is an automatic caliber that integrates expansive function within the confines of remarkably streamlined proportions. Measuring 28mm in diameter and only 4.2 mm thick, the movement is among the slimmest automatic calibers in the Panerai portfolio.
